I say yes definitely. Every dating website asks you to describe what you are looking for in a mate. How else could the possible matches read through all the profiles searching for someone that fits the qualities they have?
Every dating experience we have leads us to analyze does that person have the qualities I am looking for, that I could possibly fall in love with. Or does that certain quality send up a red flag for me, that it becomes a deal breaker.
Whether we have thought them through completely and even written them down, or just have some where in the back of our mind, we all know the most important qualities we are looking for in a mate. And although there may be some we are willing to compromise about a little, if we have done any dating at all there are definitely some characteristics, we know that we can't live without.
One of mine besides being honest and a great communicator and just being able to make me smile, is being a great kisser....
